was canceling joint exercises with the egyptian military. tonight on martha's vineyard, the president is wrapping up his vacation. our chief white house correspondent major garrett is there as well. major, the administration urged the military not to resort to violence. it's now continued for four days. why does the administration believe it was ignored? >> the administration believes the egyptian military decided to break the back of the muslim brotherhood once and for all, try to reduce or eliminate its will to protest and resist in the streets. this is a risky short-term strategy, jeff, because it could push egypt closer to a civil war if the muslim brotherhood doesn't back down or others in egypt not aligned with it also turn against the military. the administration believes the military has decided it will not pursue any kind of democratic reforms until it's dealt with the muslim brotherhood. we're in the stages now seeing if that strategy will succeed. one thing administration officials have concluded-- they were powerless to stop this turn of events. >> glor: major, some critic
